All-Natural Shave Foam

Natural & Gentle Shave Foam

by Michelle on January 29, 2010

Shave FoamI recently purchased a great product from the health store- the healthiest, most natural shave foam I’ve seen yet: J.R. Liggett’s Shaving Foam. Believe me, I have looked at a lot of supposedly “natural” shaving creams for my sensitive skin and haven’t found a single one that compares to this.

This particular shave foam comes in a non-aerosol plastic foam bottle (so no rust stains in the tub!) and the top screws off so it is completely reusable. As you might guess there are only a few ingredients, none of them being propane or isobutane, which you would likely find in commercial shaving cream.

The excellent ingredients are as follows: saponified olive oil, coconut oil, castor oil, safflower oil, almond oil, jojoba oil, Vitamin E, essential oils, and natural fragrances. The oils are very moisturizing, but foam up nicely for a gentle, close, and clean shave. This is especially nice for sensitive skin and the foam is even hypo-allergenic. The fragrance is mild and would be good for women or men. I don’t even feel the need to use lotion after shaving because my skin gets so moisturized.

I paid $9.99 for 7 ounces, but since it is in a foam bottle I think it will last for a very long time. This shave option is obviously quite a bit more costly than mass-produced, chemical-loaded bottles, but I truly don’t think you can beat it in terms of health and quality.

Just came across your website from another blog. I like it! For shaving, I’ve discovered just plain aloe vera gel works great on it own! Anyone else do this?

Thanks so much! I haven’t heard of using plain aloe vera gel for shaving, but I can see why it might work good! Do you use a store-bought gel or gel straight from the plant? Thanks again for sharing!

I shave with olive oil!! I got on a kick of making beauty products (with all edible ingredients) and I found olive oil as a shaving solution. It beats paying for expensive healthier shaving creams at health stores! =)
